Still beautiful fall weather here.  We got a sprinkle of rain.  On Saturday we went to the Grand Prairie Friends fall fete which was lots of fun.  Bonfires, potluck, and an off-trail hike through the nature sanctuary.  Torenia, portulaca, ice flowers, clover, Queen Anne's lace, morning glories, thistles, and goldenrod are blooming.  We saw purple asters, frost asters, spicebush, false nettle, and lots of other plants at Warbler Woods North.  I have started filling the bird feeders, and bought a suet cake that I still need to put out.  I also have some tulip bulbs to plant.
